We all love to dream and plan, but it seems the hardest part is getting started. We almost get stuck in the never ending dreaming and planning and never really take any real action, in fact maybe we are avoiding it. It is no surprise that most people don’t like change, but change is what is needed to reach those dreams.
“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn
Exploring your dreams and your heart desires may feel like you’re moving forward on what you want, but in order to make progress, you have to be willing to step out of your comfort zone and take action.
So, you gather up your courage and you take that big first step and realize… this is going to be WAY harder than you thought! It can even feel like your on some life obstacle course filled with detours, setbacks, delays and more. Battling the fear and anxiety and staying motivated can be a real challenge.
These challenges are enough for most of us to give up. We reason with ourselves and think “it just isn’t the meant to be” or “it just isn’t the right time”. Our dreams and heart desires get set to the side and something inside of us dimmers.
While we may tell ourselves we were only meant to live a mediocre life, our soul inside aches. Our dreams and hearts desires feel like failures and give up trying anymore.
Have you ever experienced something like this?
I just recently had a small little not so nice voice in my head tell me maybe this just wasn’t meant for me. But, I followed up with this wasn’t my story and I was in control of my own story. So, I stopped the pity party and kept pushing.
Here is a little secret I have found to help push you through the hard part and gain momentum.
If you think it is ALWAYS going to be hard, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Every time you push out of your comfort zone, commit to making a change and keep at it, your efforts will be rewarded. Each step you take is like a building block and each one builds on the previous one. As you continue to move forward the process with get easier and easier.
Before you know it, you will have put so much energy and effort into the process that momentum begins to take over. This is when you realize that you don’t have to try so hard and the obstacles aren’t as big. This is when the fun sets in and it can feel easy peasy as you get closer to realizing your dreams.
You deserve everything you dream of, everything your heart desires. All you have to do is take the first step and continue to move forward. The bigger the steps the faster you will build momentum.
If it feels like momentum is being delayed, it is likely that you are putting a foot print down, but no real step. Don’t be afraid to go after everything you want, use the power and energy you have within.
“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.” –Elbert Hubbard
